FlightPrep has unveiled its ChartBook Electronic Flight Bag System.
The system delivers GPS and moving map, as well as sectionals, TACs, and low en route IFR charts as part of the base product. All charts are geo-referenced, meaning the actual aircraft location is depicted on the charts in real-time.
ChartBook uses a finger touch-based and high-resolution screen. Approach plates are shown almost full-scale, according to company officials, who note this makes viewing images much easier compared to smaller screens that force pilots to zoom in to read small print, hiding critical information.
Price: $1,795. Annual update subscription service is $357.
